The 75-year-old West Bloomfield woman convicted of killing her grandson has been sentenced to 20-40 years in prison, according to an article by WDIV-Channel 4.
The sentence is more than Layne was hoping for. Last week, her attorney filed a request for the minimum sentence of one year.
In March, a jury found Layne guilty of second degree murder in the shooting death of her 17-year-old grandson Jonathan Hoffman this past May. Hoffman was a student at Farmington Central High School.
